. one of the reasons, concern that samsung electronics will widen its lead over apple in the global smartphone sales in the market this year. samsung could show growth of 35% and strategy analytics says samsung has a very broad product lineup. some traders noted a bearish report about iphone and ipad sales at deutsche bank as a possible reason that the stock was down today. even though the nasdaq closed higher on the day, apple kept -- kept the index's gains muted having the biggest drag on the nasdaq today. despite apple's move lower, it's up more than 4% this week. >> wow, okay. thank you. >>> a new warning that home prices may hith a speed bump in 2013. diana olick has that story. why? >> that's right, michelle. home sales are higher and demand is become and supply for home sales is really low. sounds like the perfect recipe for price spikes, right? wrong. growth will slow n 2013 r 2013. why, the latest case schiller home price index shows prices steadily rising, rising because of record low mortgage rates, a low supply of homes for sale and huge investor demand in the huge crash

along with some warnings on the strength of gloeg global demand coming from the likes of samsung. will i sixuan has plenty more from singapore. >> thank you, kelly. let's start with japan. that market yet begin took center stage in asia. december cpi came in at minus 0.2% piling more pressure on the boj to beat deflation and eventually meet that 2% inflation target. the boj jumped nearly 3% and it's up for the 11th straight week. that's the longest winning streak in about 42 years. the japanese yen weakened to a fresh 2 1/2 year low against the green back. that's fueled a strong rally in exporter stocks. shares in china gave back strong gains earlier ending down by 0.5%. chinese stocks led losses of prot taking after north korea warned us more rocket launches and a nuclear test. the weakness in the mainland dragged the hang seng lower by just a touch. china mobile shares slipped for the fifth straight sessions. elsewhere, south korea shares pulled back for the third straight session, down almost 1% today. suppliers, they continued to tumble. samsung electronics lost 2.5% despite record e
that samsung has come on very strong. when you go to a resaler, the sales for samsung are much stronger than they used to be. i think this shift has got to be acknowledged. as henry blodgett said, the stock is inexpensive. when you have something that is old news, new news, it doesn't matter, there is a continuing recognition that something is just not as great at apple that it used to be. >> i think we can make the argument all day and all night, the valuation, cash on hand, dividend that apple is paying. at the same time you can make that case for a lot of other tech stocks out there. they pay a dividend and yet the stocks don't move much anymore. and i'm thinking of like a microsoft, for instance. >> well, i was just reiterating what henry was saying. >> right. >> i feel that, again, there's a lot of things that are subtly wrong with apple. the new itune iteration is just hated. i don't know a soul who likes it. it's very clear that there are real issues involving the ipad mini and whether it's as exciting as it used to be. there is no omg factor. it's just -- frankly, as my daughter said
in to kick ap putt at the moment. an article saying is samsung the new call. the advertising campaign was five or six years old saying, android is outselling apple, which we've known for an awfully long time. as ceo, as head of the pr, marketing director, how do you stop that sort of comment dead in its tracks? is it about offering bigger dividends or something more profound? >> well, you know, one of the things i like tim cook has been saying is, we're not about maximizing market share, which maybe sounds like a crazy idea, we're about maximizing customer experience. and we want customers to love our products. that's what got them in the winner's circle in the first place. that's the only thing that enables any mobile phone company, any technology company to keep on going at this tremendous pace. >> sidney -- >> i think you have to -- >> i'm sorry. i didn't mean to interrupt you. i just want to bring in jeffrey. we had a problem with the camera at yale. and now he's now joining us on the phone. jeffrey, what is your view? what should tim cook do here to reinvigorate apple? >> well, y
ago. you look at the third-quarter share loss. 14.6% down from 23% a year ago. you look at samsung's growth, and samsung at 31% of worldwide shipments, from 8.8%. so we're seeing these two sort of cross paths here with samsung on the upswing, samsung yesterday reporting a record year, and apple on the down side. >> how long is tim cook going to subsidize its biggest enemy, samsung, and not go to taiwan semiconductors? do something about this south korean invasion. samsung is apple around the world. >> no doubt about it. took that nice train from london to paris. it goes a lot faster than amtrak, just so you know. >> does it lose money every year? >> no apple iphones to be found. but you saw a lot of galaxiegal >> you know, i've got to tell you, apple, wow, what a powerful hurt it's being put on a lot of people. this was one of those stories that everybody owns, and now everybody's saying, what the heck. >> right. >> got to break some news here with mary thompson. i think she's back at headquarters, news on aig. >> as we all know, the company's board is meeting today. and evidently

times i've been standing around and groups of people are comparing their latest samsung phone or talking about the next generations of devices out. the mobile world conference is next month in barcelona. how much pressure is on the company for new devices? i think it's been said many times. this is an extremely important earnings called for the company tomorrow night. we feel the echo system that apple brings to the table is very strong and powerful. we see about 20% 3g coverage for mobile phones at this point. there's a lot of smartphone buyers still to come into the market and we ultimately feel as though it's a samsung and apple ecosystem play here as we go forward. but, you know, i don't feel as though apple has lost the cool factor completely. we feel as though this year will be important from a product perspective of what they, again, have up their sleeve over the coming quarter peps. >> aaron, do you have an iphone? >> i do, iphone 5. >> are you using it now? >> i am. >> okay. just curious. so it still has the cool factor there with aaron rakers. he's coming in from stifel nicolau
of diversify their portfolio and in the past a lot of people wrote that off. as they feel pressure by samsung, might be more credence to the rumor this time around. stuart: we feel that the smartphone is the newest-- and selling all over the world a huge deal. primary fight between apple iphone and samsung the galaxy. >> correct. stuart: it looks like in the china market, perhaps the most important market of all, apple wants to get back, not necessarily back on top, but certain a more major player and i hear maybe this new phone, if they do indeed come out with it, could be down to $100 bucks a pop. what are you hearing? >> well, yeah, because there's a lot of pressure on them to, in unsubsidized world we're moving into. if you buy an unlocked phone today, it's $150. when you have carriers t-mobile coming out unlimited plan only for unsubsidized phones that total cost of ownership is important. if apple does come out with a low cost phone it can't just be cheaper, they're going to have to differentiate whether it's in terms of color or design or even like, hooking up into new trends like wear

've seen samsung is coming up a little bit but everybody still has an iphone. some sort of iphone. >> i think there's a lot of competition but i think apple probably still has an edge. >> a lot of the other phones are just, i don't know, more hype than anything. >> verizon buys data. that's about all i hear. >> do you think apple is losing its cool? >> yeah. i feel that way especially with the new iphone 5. >> why? >> because the new software is not as good as the old one. >> apple is extremely expensive especially with their data plan so if people are offering pretty much the same service for less people will go for that. >> my fiance has the glaxy and loves that as well so we kind of compete back and forth with each other. >> who's winning? >> he thinks he is. >> a couple of my friends are having samsung galaxy and starting to not like apple and have the samsung galaxy but again, me personally, the iphone sounds good. >> you want to say i have an iphone. >> yeah. >> you don't want to say i have a galaxy. >> here we go. yeah. >> all right. so still some cache. here is the telling thing
